In this new performance, JESSA is looking for the connections between testimonies of nurses and soldiers serving in WW I and stories about army conflicts in more recent times like WW II, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, South-Africa, Ukraine. The traumas inflicted now donâ€™t seem to differ so much from those left by WW I. Days without dates is about the common traumatic experiences, the healing and the re-integration process throughout the last century.
Days without dates is intertwining WW I and present-day testimonies into a mixed media performance in collaboration with an actress, a filmmaker and the Belgian multiple award-winning theatre company Braakland/ZheBilding (coaching and dramaturgy).
Days without dates is supported by GONE WEST (the organization responsible for the artistic commemoration of the Great War in Belgium), the City of Ostend and VGC Brussels and is premiering and touring in Belgium in November 2014.
Belgian premiere November 20th, 2014
